RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The slick-fielding shortstop put together some sporadic outbursts of offensive juice in his first full season in the majors, but is clearly more of an asset on the defensive side of the game. Hechavarria offers very little at the dish, slashing at a poor .227/.267/.298 rate last year with little power to speak of. He attempted 21 steals last season -- a healthy total -- but converted just 52 percent of those chances while being gunned down 10 times. At his best when simply putting the bat on the ball, Hechavarria's value will be heavily driven by his BABIP and his ability to utilize his modest speed efficiently on the basepaths.
Considered an elite defender at shortstop, Hechavarria put up an impressive batting line in Triple-A (.312/.363/.424) with help from the hitter-friendly PCL. When he was called up to the Blue Jays in August, his glove showed promise but it became obvious his bat needed work. Hechavarria was traded to Miami in the offseason and he'll likely win the starting shortstop job with his defensive upside, but he'll need to improve upon his sub-.300 OBP over his first 126 at-bats to stay in the lineup.
Hechavarria struggled to start the season at Double-A New Hampshire (.235/.275/.347) but got promoted anyway and responded with a solid end to the season at Triple-A Las Vegas (.389/.431/.537 in 25 games). He still needs to work on controlling the strike zone but that's not entirely unexpected from the 22-year-old Cuban. There were whispers that he could be available in a trade this winter, but for now he's ticketed to start the season at Triple-A Las Vegas. It's too soon to write him off as a disappointment, and his defense almost ensures an opportunity for everyday duty at the big league level at some point down the road even if his bat doesn't develop.
The highly-touted Cuban signed a four-year, $10 million deal with the Jays last season and was thrust into the pitcher-friendly Florida State League. He struggled greatly, hitting just .193 with 25 strikeouts in 41 games. The Jays gambled with a promotion to Double-A, and Hechavarria responded by hitting .273/.305/.360 with six steals in 61 games. He still needs to work on controlling the strike zone, but it was a nice bounceback out of the 21-year-old. He's still awfully raw and figures to spend most of his time smoothing out the edges at Double-A this season.
Cuban defector who was the starting shortstop for the Cuban Junior team in 2007 World Junior Championship. Seen as one of the top younger prospects to defect from Cuba and will try to sign with a MLB club in 2010.
